Amarillo, Texas - The fundraiser to benefit the family of the Amarillo wife and mother killed in a car accident the day after Christmas is being called a success.

It was held Saturday at El Patron Mexico restaurant in Amarillo and the Corvette Club was out there raising money for the family as well.

Nearly $7,000 were raised to help Eric Gomez and his three young children, including a newborn baby delivered early by c-section just before his wife brie died.

Twenty percent of all proceeds from Saturday's meals will go to the Gomez family.
